1 lb chicken breast fillets (boneless, skinless)
3 tsp ground coriander
2 tsp ground turmeric
1 small red chili pepper, seeded & finely chopped
4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
2 Tbs superfine (caster) sugar
1 tsp sea salt
12 bamboo skewers (I used only 2 per person for more on each skewer)
2 Tbsp peanut oil
1/2 c plain natural yogurt
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped or crushed
2 Tbsp freshly chopped mint leaves
1/4 c peeled, seeded & finely grated cucumber
Cut chicken fillets into 1-1/2" cubes. Combine ground coriander, turmeric, chili pepper, garlic, sugar and salt. In a bowl, toss pieces of chicken in spice mixture. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours.
Soak bamboo skewers in water for 10 minutes or more then drain. Thread chicken pieces onto bamboo skewers. Preheat a grill pan or barbecue, then brush grill with oil. Grill chicken skewers until golden and tender, 2-3 minutes on each side.
Combine yogurt, garlic, mint and cucumber. Mix until well combined. Cover and chill before serving. The longer it sits, the more the flavors blend through the yogurt.
